Help Torquay Museum record the coronavirus pandemic

Torquay Museum's collections represent local people, places and events from the past preserved for future generations.
However, we mustn't forget to include the stories of today.
It is important to capture these difficult times we live in.
Torbay Museum recently discovered significant gaps in its collections when staff made a temporary exhibition about the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918-19.
They had very little in the way of photographic records of these events.
Staff at the museum would like to ask the local community to take photographs of life during the current crisis and donate them to the museum.
They could show anything from empty streets and closed shops to queues in front of supermarkets and people wearing masks. They could be photographs of people helping each other, pictures of wards in hospital and the amazing NHS staff or any key workers supporting people and the economy.
